. >>> first, let's get to the news here in new york city. five days out from christmas, 12 days away from the fiscal cliff deadline that could potentially cripple the economy. house republicans are expected to vote on plan "b." that's speaker john boehner's safety net proposal that would maintain bush era tax rates for everyone making a million dollars or less. >> about providing and working with us on a balanced approach. tomorrow the house will pass legislation to make permanent tax relief for nearly every american. 99.81% of the american people. then the president will have a decision to make. he can call on senate democrats to pass that bill or he can be responsible for the largest tax increase in american history. >> well, president obama has threatened to veto boehner's measure and he said republicans need to drop any personal grudges they might have to do what's best for the country. >> they keep on finding ways to say no as opposed to finding ways to say yes. and i don't know how much of that just has to do with, you know, it is very hard for them to say yes to me. but, you know,
that they are not that far away, he cited a chart in "the new york times" the charts were similar. this is a "you should take the deal" press conference, and you're right, the president knew if he opened up the questions, he would get a fiscal cliff question. one of the things i was struck by was it was very clear the president was going to keep taking questions until he got another question on guns. he just kind of kept, okay, i'll take one more, one more, so it was a dual-purposed press conference, both to announce this gun control commission, although the president isn't calling it a commission being led by joe biden, but also kind of get himself get where he believes the fiscal cliff is and where it needs to go, at least rhetorically get himself out on both those things, and he did it. that's the power of the presidency. >> the other question is at the end, until then, all the questions were about the fiscal cliff and no follow-up questions about what exactly policies, what policies are going to be part of this gun task force. >> and that -- what's hard on this, andrea, that's the difficult thing, and i
with the new york philharmonic and inspired composers like philip black. he was nominated for a score for the movie "gandhi." he had undergone surgery for respiratory infections in the fall before being nominated for another grammy. he is survived by two daughters, including singer norah jones. ravi shankar 92 years old. >>> let me know why you're awake. shoot me an e-mail or tweet me @billkarins. we'll read the best responses later in the show. >>> but still ahead, the battle for new york. carmelo anthony lights up the court. this was in brooklyn and it was payback time against the knicks. highlights in a thrilling finish in sports. >>> and this is a good one, jon stewart channels rapper eminem, coming up with rhymes for the michigan protest. that and a check on weather when "way too early" comes right back. >>> she spoke in court for the first time since the trial began. sobbing, she asked the judge for mercy, saying she was ashamed and living a nightmare. the judge was not persuaded. he told hemsley she was a product of greed and was at the ape yej of a period of wrongdoing. the se
school. newtown, connecticut, is about 60 miles northeast of new york city. it's near danbury, connecticut. the young man who police say was the shooter reportedly walked into two different classrooms at sandy hook elementary. he fired dozens of rounds. he killed 26 people. 18 children pronounced dead at the scene. six adults pronounced dead at the scene. and then two children who survived their initial wounds and were hospitalized later died in hospital. the shooter then killed himself at the school. the associated press is siting a law enforcement official moments ago saying authorities found more than the previously described two guns at the school once they responded. more firearms than the two we have previously heard about. they're not giving any further details yet. but that report just in from the associated press. the students who were not shot, none of them older than fourth graders, were escorted out of the building by police officers this morning. they were taken to a fire station next door. police officers reportedly told some of the children to keep their eyes cl
them back to new york. >> places like philadelphia. >> you look at murders across the tri-state area, so many come from virginia in that gun show loophole. bob mcdonald said we need more guns and give teachers guns. you know what? before you arm more people, look at the gun shows in virginia that, again, allow trafficking of these illegal arms up here. i mean, that they are bought legally and end up in the wrong hands. >> they close it after jim's report and mayor bloomberg is doing his own undercover work on this. >> that's one way we show we're not totally serious about cracking down on guns. another one is to say that connecticut is tough on guns, which a lot of people have said in the last few days, and they are by the standards we have. the fifth toughest according to the brady campaign. you can get any number of automatic rifles. you can have a grenade launcher attachment on these. it's not really tough on guns but by the standards we have. >> tough by the standards we have, which are very low. this slippery slope argument you can make on everything. if the tsa can frisk me at
, and joining me today, jonathan chait, joy reid, new york times political reporter nicolas and catherine crier. christmas break is already over for president obama. he's flying back to washington tonight and aides say he's ready for a deal. it's not clear whether this trip is a sign of compromises to come or another display of theater showing the president is willing to work even as his opponents skip town. meanwhile, though, americans are growing skeptical. in the last week alone, gallup found a 15-point drop in the number of americans who think congress will negotiate a deal on the fiscal cliff. that's not all, holiday spending also hit its lowest rate since the 2008 recession, which retailers are blaming on the uncertainty in washington. so where do we go from here? well, since the house failed to get a vote on the tax package last week, all eyes are on the senate. a temporary deal that would basically extend all the tax cuts for those making under a quarter million. the deal would also rescue long-term unemployment benefits and instead of addressing those automatic spending cuts we've all
of weapons into camden, philly, new york, new haven, that flow of weapons into these streets, many of them coming to the south where they have secondary markets that are thriving, they would stop and dry up. so on the local level, this is what mayors get so frustrated about. we are pouring incredible amounts of money, almost my entire property tax base, forget about the rest of government, is being used for public safety purposes. more police, more cameras. i'm doing everything right now, i've got a woman with a caliber, she were melting down seized weapons and selling them as jewelry in order to get money for more gun buy backs. you name it, id am trying it. but without state and federal laws changes, many mayors are fighting an uphill battle and won't be able to stop the levels of violence in america to the extent that we want. this is a moment and it needs leadership to seize it at every level of government. >> you hooked me up with a link. >> caliber is the name of it. >> it just hit me. right there. >> a good percentage of the profits are going to gun buy back programs in my city. mar
to new york next, you may want to just chat with roger. i just say what i have suggested and that we've discussed is next time you go to new york you're going to stop by and see him? >> yeah. i'd be happy. i haven't seen him in awhile. he's a brilliant guy. >> he's simply brilliant. >> he is. tell him if i ever ran, but i won't. but if i ever ran, i'd take him up on his offer. e he said he would quit fox. and bankroll it. >>. bankroll it. or maybe i'm confusing that with rupert. >> i know roger he's done okay. but no, i think the one who's bankrolling it is the big boss. >> okay. the big boss is bankrolling it it. roger's going to run it. and the rest of us are going to be your in-house. >> never going to happen. >> my wife would divorce me. and i love my wife. >> tell her it's a beautiful house. >> we have a beautiful house. >> i know. that's the happiest marriage. >> keep your mitts off my dressing room. >> my husband and i have had a very long and happy relationship because we have completely separate bathrooms. >> that's the ticket. >> that is how the tape ends. that recording wa
say that you need to take this proposal. this was what david burke said in the "new york times" and said if you don't take it, you're going to end up with something much worse. it's a bit of progress that boehner is beginning essentially his opening bid is considered a compromise bid back in 2011. >> now, michelle, the politics of this seems to be potentially disastrous for the republicans. when you look at the fact that 82% of people polled oppose reducing social security benefits, 67% oppose raising medicare eligibility age, meanwhile, 60% support raising taxes on the wealthy. >> it's very important that people think about the fact that in theory americans like small government. but in practice when you start talking about popular programs, they get very, very snippy about you threatening to cut anything. so what we have here is a situation where they've taken -- the republicans have taken away the presidential talking point of, well, republicans don't have a plan. but they have not taken away the talking point of, well, republicans want to cut all this so that they can keep
who's a moderate in a special election, and in upstate new york which a lot of people had forgotten, but was kind of the kickoff to this purge of nonconservativeses. then gingrich apologized when the third, you know, the third-party candidate lost with -- it's complicated. basically the conservative might have won had the republican pulled out completely. said, i'm sorry, i'll never do it again. the demint vision for how to bring republicans to bear what they have to believe if they're republicans has spread far beyond places where it is sellable. and, again, the people who disagree with him, they just don't see what he gained for all that opposition. they saw, you stopped a couple of spending bills, but in the long run, or at least in the next couple years, you just set up a bunch of crisis points where republicans don't have lots of leverage because our message looks like your message and voters reject it. i mean, voters by about a 20-point margin blame republicans now or they will blame republicans if there's a fiscal cliff crisis. >> right. they perspectively -- they perspective
for failures, security failures prior to benghazi. so to blame susan rice who's over at the u.n. mostly in new york city for benghazi is really a stretch. she was the person who went out on sunday television. and she said today to brian williams that she is not blameless. i think there was a lack of care with the talking points and the republicans seized on it and claims she was being political and trying to be political at a key point in the presidential election campaign, which she strongly denies. >> but you're saying that the president's statements to that effect were not enough because they were not backed up with essentially procedural support for her to be fighting these attacks that could have happened had he nominated her. >> once she's nominated she is armed with the white house counsel's office-w every wise person, man or woman in washington who would be assigned to her to get her through the nomination process. but she was left -- she said she didn't feel that she's a victim here, but she certainly did acknowledge to brian that she thinks politics played a part. and i don't think t
was so -- lapierre was so disconnected from reality. i worked in new york city public schools. the idea of putting armed guards in schools is not even worth treating as a serious idea. it was so sort of out of step with where i think the conversation has been, the level of respect, and the kind of conversation we've been having nationally that i would almost guarantee you that it has done more actually to help our cause than any one of us could have done. >> no doubt. and to your point, of course, studies have been done, the greater amount of guns are in a particular jurisdiction, the greater likelihood homicide will occur and some gun violence will be sparked off. so it's a pretty ludicrous idea. mark, franklin roosevelt in one of his famous fireside chats said all we have to fear is fear itself. he was speaking about the looming terror of an approaching enemy from the outside, but this seems to be something from the inside. it seems like fear itself is the only thing that wayne lapierre has to offer. let's take a listen to this. >> violent crime is increasing again for the first time
again. "the new york times" reports that one idea bouncing around the right side of the aisle is this. the republicans will extend tax cuts for the middle class, and then when they need to raise the debt ceiling, quote, demand deep concessions on medicare and social security as a price to raise the debt ceiling. one republican senator reportedly called the debt ceiling the line in the stand. the odds are pretty close to zero that we mint a $1 trillion coin in order to pay off some of the debt. but there's striking movement in the direction of changing the rules so we don't ever have to fight over this completely unnecessary issue ever again. remember, this is important. the debt ceiling isn't about incurring future debt. it's about the money congress has already duly authorized and appropriated and voted to spend. it's not a fight about whether or not to spend money, it's a fight about whether or not to pay your credit card bill. today, the president basically said, no more. y'rp+ing this dumb fight. i am not going to do it again. >> i want to send a very clear message to people here.
in mind, john? >> well, new york governor andrew cuomo is rumored to want to run. maryland mayor martin o'malley is rumored to want to run. there are other people within the democratic party who would love for the chance to run for president in 2016. it would be an open seat. there would be no incumbent running. and so if hillary clinton is going to run for president from their perspective, they want her to make that decision sooner rather than later so that they can get their apparatus in place because unlike her, they can't just turn a latchkey and have everything, you know, fired up and ready -- >> millions of dollars, support networks and so on. >> yes. >> steve, hasn't this actually been a total transformation in the life of the clintons? because you were referencing her success, hillary clinton's success. but bill clinton has now transformed his standing. he is now a global figure, too, isn't he? >> and also just their standing within the democratic party. the thing this struck me this summer was compared how the bts were treated by the entire democratic convention this summer versu
panel. with me here in washington is msnbc political analyst david corn, and in new york msnbc political analyst professor michael eric dyson. david, can i start with you? the president began with, o come all ye faithful, and now we have speaker boehner singing in the bleak winter. how far does the president have to go to give boehner something that helps boehner go to his caucus and say let's just do our deal. >> you want someone to be singing "i'll be home for christmas." >> there you go. >> first, it's nice to see you in d.c. >> it's a great pleasure. >> we have this little bubble of optimism in the conventional media the past few days. although they're talking, they're not saying much, there must be progress, but we still have a fundamental divide here. the president says rates have to go up. he doesn't want to trade the debt ceiling for anything. he thinks that should be separate. and boehner put out a proposal saying we'll raise invest knews but we're going to lower rates. won't specify, as you noted earlier. there seems to be in the staff level at least not much progress, any prog
